Hoey Earns All-Pac-12 First Team Notice, Among Five Trojans Honored.
USC junior Rico Hoey earned first team honors for the third year in a row while sophomores Sean Crocker and Jonah Texeira earned second team notice, leading a group of five Trojans who were honored Wednesday (May 4) on the 2016 All-Pac-12 Men’s Golf team, as selected by the conference’s coaches.
Hoey leads the Trojans in stroke average, rounds in the 60s (12) and top 10 finishes (eight). Crocker, first team a year ago, claimed second team honors thanks to four top 10 finishes, six in the top 20 and eight rounds in the 60s. Texeira, on the Pac-12 All-Freshman Team last year, earned his first second-team selection with five top 10 finishes and 10 rounds in the 60s.
Senior Andrew Levitt, in his first year as a starter, claimed All-Pac-12 honorable mention honors while freshman Justin Suh, like Texeira and Crocker last year, earned All-Pac-12 Freshman notice. Levitt has three top 5 finishes this season, including his first collegiate win. Suh has four top 20 results, including a tie for 19th at the Pac-12 Championships.
The Trojans, ranked first for much of 2015-16 and in the top 5 for most of it, will find out its NCAA Championships Regional destination on Thursday when the NCAA announces its field.
